Cabbage Soup

You've gotta love a recipe for cabbage soup that adds a dash of Tabasco Sauce! I had to make a stop at the store this morning, anyway, so I got a small head of cabbage to make this soup. Also bought a heating pad-to warm up the sheets before we climb into bed...comfort...lots of comfort is what you need in January. I hope you have a good day!

Cabbage Soup
(Victoria Garbarino)

1 small cabbage, shredded
1 C chopped celery
1 C chopped onion
1 TBSP lemon juice
4 C finely-chopped tomatoes
4 C water
Dash of hot sauce, optional
4 beef or chicken bouillon cubes
Salt and pepper to taste
12 oz. club soda

Place 1 C water in the bottom of a large pot. Add cabbage, celery and onion; cook until tender (about 5 min.). Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 hour. Divide evenly. Each serving provides 3 1/4 vegetable exchange, 5 calories optional exchange.

I will be at these swaps today:


  1. I'm Polish so I love love love cabbage. I've never made cabbage soup, though...and club soda? Huh. I usually made stuffed cabbage or a standard "bigos" which is called hunter's strew in English I think. I need to blog about it :)

  2. I would love it if you shared some of those great Polish recipes from your family!

  3. This sounds tasty! I'm always looking for new soup recipes to get us through the cold, winter months! The ingredients for this recipe are going on my shopping list!!!

    Thanks for sharing!
